Meet Simba

******Please note, once completing the initial screen you will be connected with the placement for a video chat or an in person meet and greet. If you are not able to accept a dog until a specific time period, please apply at that time************

We are a volunteer run rescue and donate our time to these dogs. IF you are not serious about moving forward in our adoption process, please do not apply. If someone other than yourself is part of the decision making process, please make sure you have spoken with them and they are on board. We really do not want to waste anyone's time if you are not serious about adopting this dog.


We can either meet at the Peace Arch Park at the boarder or can arrange for a volunteer to drive into Canada and meet just over the boarder.

Simba, 5 year old neutered male, Retriever mix, 65 pounds. Simba is in a foster home Camas, Washington and available for meet and greets. If you do not live within reasonable driving distance, a virtual meeting can be scheduled.

"Free Dogs." That was the sign Simba's owners held up outside a shopping center late at night in San Antonio, Texas. A kind family passing by took Simba and his brother, Snowball, in until they had to move and were unable to keep or care for them any longer. That's when we came in.

Simba is a medium energy dog - just enough to keep up with his foster's energetic Labrador neighbor dog. He enjoys running and jumping around, bouncing and chasing after the other dogs and knows when to stop playing. He is respectful about correcting other dogs that he's had enough playing, too. Simba's desire to play seems to depend upon the day - sometimes he just stands there close by watching the other dogs, ignores them altogether, or will decide "today's the day" and joins in.

Simba goes on walks daily with two smaller dogs and walks calmly most of the time. If he sees a dog he doesn't know, he will sometimes bark in their direction. His foster mom has been working on his leash skills.

Simba lives in a home with older teenagers and he loves them. He's been around younger kids - ages 5 and 7 - and been fine, soaking up the love and attention. We recommend a home with kids who understand and respect animal boundaries. We have no history with cats.

Simba has great house manners and is housetrained, is trusted loose in the house, and does not bark. Simba doesn't 'ask' to go out to pee - he just gets restless and starts sniffing around and that's his cue he needs to relieve himself. He is not crate trained as he barks incessantly and will tear it up in an attempt to break free.

Simba is very chill and happy to lay around and nap most of the day, after a fairly long walk in the morning. If we don't walk again in the afternoon, sometimes he gets the 'zoomies' either in the backyard or in the house. He has a number of small stuffed animal toys that he loves to chase, and lay down and chew on. Simba loves the car and wants to get in even if just walking past it. When in he car, he loves being able to look out the windshield and will lay down to nap.

He's a super polite and refined gentleman, loves to touch you and is not a licker at all. He is silent in the house, I never hear him fuss or bark. He doesn't bark at the doorbell or anything. At night he sleeps loose downstairs and he just lays on his bed. He wakes up happy and eager to see you in the morning, wagging his tail. He'd love the action and busi-ness of a family - someone home more than they are away and someone to watch TV with especially in the evenings.

***Listed BREED and AGE - We are taking our best guess & recommendations from our veterinarian on age, breed and size when fully grown. We rarely know a dog's exact age nor are we able to tell the true or full breed mix of dogs as our information is limited most of the time. ***
